Subject: Comedy, too

When Doc Carter promises his daughter that he's swearing off the alcohol for good, she turns around and makes another tick on the running tally she's keeping on the back wall inside their traveling medicine show. Apparently, he's sworn that oath a few times before. :D

Though the rest of the film is fairly ordinary, there's nothing like a good belly laugh at the beginning to make a person receptive. Wayne's character always gets the girl at the end of these Paul Malvern productions, but he'll have to wait this time, as this girl's dad (Doc Carter) has managed to sell the justice of the peace on the wonders of his miracle Indian Nerve tonic.

I take my humour where I can find it, and this film offered me more than many films I've seen that bill themselves as comedies. Four stars for a good laugh and a smile when I sorely needed both.
